Paperback, 304 pagesPublished November 30th 2010 by AceMeet Maddy Black.
She’s an Agent of Death who really needs to get a life.
Escorting souls into the afterlife leaves Maddy little time for socializing—until devilishly handsome Gabriel Angeloscuro agrees to rent the empty apartment in her building. But when demons start appearing on Maddy’s front lawn, she realizes there’s more to her new tenant than meets the eye.
Black Wings is a very interesting story with a different take on good and evil.
Maddie is mostly a loner who lives in an apartment with a gargoyle, who's only mission in life is to make sure nothing happens to her. She works very hard and at the same time tries to live a normal life. She isn’t really afraid of anything and loves to speak her mind.
Maddie has been trying to rent the apartment downstairs from her, to earn a little more cash. She has not had any luck until sexy Gabriel shows up asking to rent the apartment. And since she is in desperate need of money, she decides to rent the apartment to Gabriel. She finds him to be very attractive and mysterious. Of course after he moves in a lot of weird and crazy things begin to happen.
At first she does not really see a connection to Gabriel and her feelings for him begin to grow more and more each day. As they begin to fall for one another, the truth also starts to unfold. Now, even though I loved Maddie's personality and think that Gabriel is a super hottie, I just did not feel the chemistry between them. I would have loved a little more development between the two.
Another issue I had was that even though at first I was super excited over all the action happening in this book and how fast pace it was, after a while it just became very predictable. Every page I turned, I pretty much figured out what would happen next.
I do think that Christina Henry's writing is very easy to follow and the story was not bad at all. Her characters were very easy to like and it was definitely good enough to keep my attention. But like I mentioned before, it became a little predictable and the chemistry between Maddie and Gabriel did not reach out to me. Black Wings has a little bit of action, humor, mystery, suspense and very little romance. 3 Stars!
